Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 79 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Frequent guest I've been coming to this hotel for many years on business. About a year ago I stopped coming because the Internet access was too slow to get anything done in the evenings. I tried it again about six months ago and found that they had completely revamped their Internet access. It's fantastic! I'm glad to be back, because frankly, it's the cleanest hotel in the area with the best (newest) beds and towels. September 17, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent stay! We stayed for four nights and they were four great nights! The hotel was quiet, clean and the customer service was the best. Truly, this hotel had the best customer service I've ever experienced in any hotel I've ever stayed in. We received a free room upgrade, which really helped make our stay more comfortable. The free breakfast in the mornings and dinners at night were all great and real money savers. Ours was a family vacation so we were already spending quite a bit on day-to-day outings. Staybridge really helped us to keep within our budget. I loved this hotel and will be back. September 17, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great place to stay for short or long visits We stayed at Irvine/Lake Forest Staybridge Suites for a soccer tournament. We were very pleased with our stay. Any questions or concerns which we had were taken care of satisfactorily. The breakfast was excellent with different choices each day. Our suite was clean and very comfortable. One of the TVs did not work; I reported it and when we returned, it was working. September 9, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great place where the staff treats you like family! From the moment you are greeted by a smile and a bowl full of candy, you know you're at home :-) September 7, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great stay, great staff The property was well maintained, quiet and clean. They handled our large group very well and the staff jumped at any of our requests. The one issue was with the air conditioner, but didn't contact staff on it. The fan on the air conditioner constantly blew on high and couldn't put a lower setting. It was warm outside so better to be cool than hot, but it was a bit loud in the night time. They probably would have address if we had brought it to their attention. September 4, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Wonderful stay and highly recommended. Aside from all the great amenities Staybridge Suites in Lake Forest offers, I want to make a special mention about the incredible team that work there. Cleo, Bobby, Mimi and the team are always welcoming and ensuring all aspects of my stay are wonderful. I do have a choice when staying in Lake Forest for business but always choose the Staybridge Suites in Lake Forest. It is a home away from home. Congrats to the team for their hard work and exceptional customer service. September 2, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Spacious and Comfortable Room I was very pleased with my recent stay at the Staybridge Suites in Irvine East/Lake Forest. The room was spacious, comfortable, and clean. The dinner and breakfast were delicious, The service was friendly and attentive. I was very happy with my stay and will stay again in the future. September 1, 2014

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great place to stay Bed and pillows were comfortable, room was plenty dark to sleep in. Free food/ beverages and laundry were extremely nice. I would definitely stay again. August 26, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great stay!!!! Perfect for family, business and pleasure. Love the rooms and kitchen. Staying again soon. Totally reccomend August 21, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by I found a gem I did not know that this hotel existed until the other hotels that I wanted to book were all filled. I had no choice but to try this hotel as it was in the location that I wanted to be at. Turned out to be very enjoyable and one of my best stays in Orange county. August 20, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent value extended stay hotel This is the highest value extended stay option in the Lake Forest / Irvine area. A trip to the grocery store and a $20 toaster oven and your ready to relax or put in those additional midnight work hours. August 20, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great fin Having not previously stayed at Staybridge Suites we were pleasantly surprise to find this quality of hotel. We booked 4 rooms for 4 nights. The suites are spacious, clean and well stocked. It's like being at home. The breakfast is not the typical truck delivered fast food but cooked on site and well worth eating. I will seek out Staybridge in future visits. August 16, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great staff and breakfast This hotel suits all your needs. The breakfast and weekday dinners were very good. The hotel was very quiet, which allowed us to get great sleep in while staying in the area. I would stay here again when in town and would definitely recommend it. August 5, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Clean Clean room. Good nights sleep. Breakfast was "okay" I have had better. The breakfast serving area was very small and people were reaching and bumping into each other. August 1, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Peaceful and Quiet... My family love their stay in this hotel, very likely to return for another weekend. July 28, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent service Staff was very accommodating. Would definitely consider on my next trip July 27, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by loyalty I have been traveling year round since April 1999. What keeps people loyal to a certain hotel chain is not just the amenities provided - it is the staff. The sales manager, the hotel manager and assistant manager, all the desk clerks, the housekeeping and kitchen staff in this hotel are the best. When I first came to this area I was in another hotel and moved to this hotel as I wasn't happy with the other hotel. it was the best move I could have made. you could well use this staff to train new personnel for all your hotels. July 25, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent place to stay. Great Service and very clean. Beds were comfortable. Overall Excellent place to stay. July 23, 2014

Wonderful staff, super clean, very comfortable, large rooms, great food. Very affordable. It's my favorite hotel to stay at. I highly recommend it to all my friends. July 17, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great place to stay This was a great location that had an awesome staff that was very accommodating. July 16, 2014
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Great staff, nice common areas, rooms need update BEDs are terrible but the overall experience was okay. The staff was nice but they have more smoking rooms than non-smoking. Breakfast was so-so. July 15, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 Staybridge Survey This is my first time to stay at Staybridge. All family members were thrilled and enjoyed staying there. In fact often they call it home when we were site seeing or touring LA areas and they get tired, they'd say let's go home. One thing that was bothering all family members and that is serving pork variety meet everyday with breakfast. never changed even one day. We got tired of scrambled eggs, hash-browns were too greasy. So as much as we love to eat breakfast, the hot items were never in our favor. July 9, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great place to stay Everything was great. Can not wait to go back. I always tell my friends and family about the hotel. My wife has been there twice. July 1, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Like home I've been traveling to South Orange County for almost 2 years now and whenever I'm in town, I always look forward to staying at Staybridge Suites. It's the next best thing to being at home. June 24, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Hidden secret of Lake Forest Although our main reason for our trip was a family wedding, neither of us has had a vacation in over 10 years. So we decided to Vacation and Party. This location was minutes from family, and about one hour or less from nearly every tourist site in S. Cal. Our stay was fantastic. Hope it won't be another 10 years. June 13, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 With an Eye on Every Detail To be honest, I had never heard of Staybridge Suites prior to our stay. Rest assured, Staybridge Suites will be at the top of my search list for future reservation searches. They have gotten it right from all aspects. The staff, the room, the breakfast, the grounds....top-of-the-line! June 6, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Treated like Family I stay in over 200 hotel rooms per year and the staff a this hotel i the best! I feel like family there because they treat me like family! May 29, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Desk Staff---AMAZING!!!! I have not ever stayed at a hotel where the Desk staff were so helpful, kind, generous and overall AWESOME!! Mimi assisted me over the phone with our initial room reservations as we had a wedding block of rooms. She was so helpful and patient. Bobby was such a sweetheart from the time we arrived til the time we left. He was so kind and helpful as was Mimi and although I did not have as much interaction with Claudia, she was also very helpful and polite, The only thing that was not up to par was the room attendant service. We stayed just under a week and we did not have our room cleaned every day as it did not need it. However, we need our trash emptied and fresh towels and on the next to last day the person who did that dropped trash and left it on our floors in several places and seemed unhappy with her tasks. But once again, the desk staff and oh yes,the kitchen staff also...all excellent. I am so happy we stayed at Staybridge....it made our overall visit to California really really wonderful. Thank you so very very much!!!! May 8, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Family Vacation We stayed at this IHG property for three days during a family vacation. The upgraded 2 queen suite was very nice and the beds amazingly comfortable. So comfortable that we would love to find out the brand and model of mattress and replace our home mattress with one of the same. The breakfast had a good variety of choices and the oatmeal was very good. The dining room was large, pleasant and very comfortable. The interior courtyard was quiet and very comfortable. We will definitely stay at this IHG property again whenever we are in the area. April 12, 2014
